World Heart Day is on 29 September this year.
Higher prevalence of heart disease in Singapore
A recent study by the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) found that in Asia, Singaporeans face a greater risk of heart failure due to the increase in conditions like hypertension and diabetes. On average, Singaporean patients suffer heart failure around the age of 61 – that’s 10 years younger than Americans and Europeans.
